Tancred de Hauteville was a Norman lord of Southern Italy who was among the first noblemen to join the Crusades in 1096. He saw considerable victories on this bloody campaign, and after the fall of Jerusalem he was awarded the title Prince of Galilee. The exact sword he carried is unknown, but it would have been similar to this historical style. The pommel has the nurit flower of Galilee on one side, and the other is adorned with the Crusader cross. The wood grip is been covered with soft stitched leather accented with antique brass details. The imposing 2" wide blade has a deep fuller running the length which gives great balance to this mighty sword. Included is a sumptuous scabbard with a long sword belt and historical suspension.
